REPRESENTATIVES from a residential developer intending to build 40 homes in Ferring gave an ‘informative’ and ‘positive’ presentation to villagers at the latest Ferring Parish Council meeting.

Andy Barron and Amy Lissman, from residential developer Taylor Wimpey, and Steven Brown, from Woolf Bond Planning, attended the initial consultation, showing a plan of the proposed development of Grenyer’s Field, on the junction of Langbury Lane and Littlehampton Road.

Mr Brown said: “We will take on board comments we get and will be looking at getting in a detailed application by the end of February.”

The site will comprise of 11 two-bed homes, 10 three-bed homes and 19 four-bed homes of varying sizes, and will include approximately 80 car-parking spaces and 20 garages.

Nadine Phibbs, Parish clerk, said the presentation was informative and looked to be a positive start.

However, there was concern from members of the public over possible traffic-flow issues at the entrance to the site, as well as the discovery of, and potantial spread of, Japanese knotweed.
